In the hopes of helping her aunt Mara (Nora Aunor) better deal with her dementia, Rachel (Jasmine Curtis) moves her out to their family's remote ancestral home. There Rachel records Mara's daily activities and helps engage the older woman in exercises that would help her cognitive thinking, such as putting together jigsaw puzzles. What Rachel didn't plan on is that Mara's presence in the house will stir up memories and presences that are better left undisturbed. Mara and Rachel begin to see a ghost of Mara's past memories come alive.
